www.INTENSE-RACING.com will make me a custom PCM with no limiter for $400, the car will exceed 130mph no problem.

If 2K+ SSEi owner can confirm your claims of a E/M whatever that changes the governor, I'll buy it, but for now I don't.
I guess your not understanding what I said, when you hit the E/M switch it doesn't remove a governer, the car was traveling 84MPH, in metric that is 136 Kilometers Per Hour, hence, the speedo, which switches to a METRIC reading showed 136 Kilometers Per Hour, while the car was only traveling 84 Miles Per Hour, no governer was hit, no governer was changed, only the readout on the dash cluster.

GTXCOWBOY should keep his issues with me on a different forum as well, but he has not, so set the record straight, and it does not take confirmation to prove.

Rogue? TaylorD? etc...someone without a chip...I want to know if this 135 mph EM dealy is legit
Sweet god. I DID NOT SAY 136MPH... NOWHERE DID I SAY THAT.

Switching the readouts in the car to METRIC shows Celcius on the climate control, and Kilometers Per Hour in both the heads up display, AND it physically switches the dash speedometer to show KILOMETERS per hour, and that is what it is a picture of.

As you will notice in that picture it does not have the Kilometers Per Hour numbers under the MPH numbers, it only has one set of readouts.

When you push the button to switch to Metric readouts, a light on the main cluser switches from MPH to Km/H and then the needle physically changes and the main numbers are now to be read as Km/H.. no longer MPH.

The car never went over 84 Miles Per Hour in that picture.

Ok...was your car built in CAN? That image is deceiving, it looks like 140mph is the last number, if it was in metric, then 220kph would be the last number.

That image looks like the primary speed units are in MPH
